Still out in the desert sands of Malcovia, the party tracked their way to the circling buzzards. There, they discovered the odd empty/ash cloaks of the Goddess of Cold ashes - who were performing some odd and terrible ceremony on the corpse of the dragon who owned the Oasis!
It was an awkward fight, with the shape of the sand bowl, the ash cloaks that teleported people away,
In the end, Tola wound up in Gary's cold fireplace, and Mayhemanti was there as well. They returned the Kolbold mage to her adventure just in time to see the body animate and fly into the sand and toward the mountain that touched down near the Oasis.
